This course covers how to design job flows and schedule SAS jobs using the Platform Suite for SAS. The scheduled processes that are covered in this course include only user-written SAS code and SAS Data Integration Studio jobs. However, the concepts and techniques are applicable to SAS Web Report Studio reports, SAS Marketing Automation jobs, and SAS Marketing Optimization jobs as well.

The scheduling techniques covered in this course can be used in either a single-machine SAS server environment or in a SAS Grid environment. However, this course does not address SAS Grid topics apart from the scheduling component specifically. Grid topics are covered in the course SAS® Grid Manager Administration

Setup for the training was easy and participants were mostly provided with the necessary things for continued learning, however, a couple people in my class dealt with technical issues with their virtual machines in the virtual training.

Loved the training format, content and the exercises. Jemma is a great Instructor.

I enjoyed this class and the instructor did a very good job explaining the course material.

Excellent class overall! The Instructor and the course material were the best so far, and I have taken a few AWS classes. I highly recommend it- Architecting on AWS.

This is my first training with ExitCertified and I truly enjoyed this learning experience. I have taken other classes where the instructor solicited students for so much input it was unclear who was teaching the class. Other experiences were filled with so much personal chatter the instructor had to rush thru the course material. This instructor was very professional and actually delivered the materially.
